In pursuit of a miracle #WriteBravely

I stood in front of the mirror, my eyes shut tightly. My heart was beating so loudly, the thumping could be heard all around the room, my palm was moist with sweat, my throat parched.

Leap of faith #TellTaleThursday

I stood at the station waving her goodbye till I could see her silhouette disappear as the train moved farther on. At this odd hour, the station was empty.

Shouldn’t I boil with anger… Continue reading An ounce of faith #TellTaleThursday

Not merely a dream #TellTaleThursday

I am humming a song as I ride my green colour bicycle – the weather is perfect! And there he comes, riding on a horse, my knight in shining armour. Tall, dark, handsome, kind, funny- he has it all. I stop, he stops. We look at each other and sparks fly. He waves at me,… Continue reading Not merely a dream #TellTaleThursday
